Oh, to be hot, rich and…single? Being single in Hollywood does have its advantages, especially if you like to play the field. "Normal" people flock to celebs in hopes of being associated with them in some way, being pictured in a tabloid next to them, or for a chance at an exciting but meaningless hook up. Some stars keep their personal lives private while others are out and about flaunting everyone they are making out with. Whatever the case may be these following stars appear to be available at the moment, therefore making them the Hottest Single Stars of 2008.

Brody Jenner - The Hills uber-hottie is the typical womanizer and he seems to love it that way! Although he is quite cocky, ladies love him just the same and there is always a new admirer following him around in the clubs. Like George Clooney, Brody may stay single forever! He doesn't seem like the "one woman" type. Bummer!

Gerard Butler - Gerard is one of the dreamiest movie stars and he appears to be milking it for all it's worth! Over the past few months he has been spotted canoodling with many hot women like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and more recently Shanna Moakler.

Cody Linley - This adorable teenager stars on Hannah Montana and Dancing With The Stars. The rumors of Cody dating his DWTS partner Julianne Hough may or may not be true, but either way, he's too young to be tied down!

Chace Crawford - His show, Gossip Girl is one of the hottest shows this year and Chace is clearly one of the hottest stars. He's no longer with Carrie Underwood, which puts him in the hot and single market!

Corbin Bleu - Corbin plays the adorable Chad Danforth in High School Musical. What are the two best things about Corbin? He's got great hair and he's single!

Shia LaBeouf - He may have had a little drunk driving mishap under his belt but he is talented and one of the hottest stars this year with his role in Indiana Jones!

Leighton Meester - Another Gossip Girl star who is at the top of her game, Leighton is hot, stylish and single.

Taylor Swift - This young, fresh, country music star seems to have everyone wrapped around her finger! And to think, Joe Jonas dumped her over the phone! What a mistake he made!

Julianne Hough - Julianne is the spunky and cute Dancing with the Stars dancer whose smile can light up a room! She was reportedly going out with country music star Chuck Wicks but is now single fellas!

Adrian Grenier - He's not exactly like his Entourage character, Vinny Chase, but if he was he would be living the dream of every single guy alive! Yet, Adrian is frequently photographed on the beach with different woman -maybe Vinny is rubbing off on him!

Anne Hathaway - Kudos to you Anne for dumping your felon of an ex-boyfriend. She is talented, hot and better off single.

James Franco -James dated actress Marla Sokoloff for a long time but hasn't since been linked to many women. He's talented, smart and funny - a great catch!

Michael Phelps - Although he has been seen with former Miss California, Nicole Johnson, he isn't married ladies! Michael was the talk of the summer Olympics and with a body like that he is still fresh on our minds!

Carrie Underwood - Carrie is the beautiful and talented winner of American Idol turned Grammy award winning country star. She's quite the catch!
